March – This is Madness!

Let me just get this off my chest… Life is not fair. Still, no matter what cards you may be dealt, it is up to you to make the best of it. “Attitude is Everything!” Pete and I entered the… Continue Reading →

Happy New Year!

“Cover the earth before it covers you.” Dragobert D. Runes. I remember how I felt at this time last year. Excited, anxious, worried, and a little fearful. I was newly retired, I didn’t know when my first retiree “paycheck” would… Continue Reading →

Giving Thanks.

Shortly after my last post, and after Pete’s orthopedist reviewed the results of the MRI, Pete was advised to stop taking the antibiotics that (we believe) abated the recurrence of his knee infection. We looked for swelling, redness and pain… Continue Reading →

October? Oktoberfest!

“Das leben ist bezaubernd, man muss es nur durch die richtige Brille Sehen.” [Life is wonderful, you just need to see it through the right glasses.] – Prost! We have settled in. We love our mountain retreat in the Sierra Foothills…. Continue Reading →

Complications

We have made the most of our time in New England post-injury. Pete’s left knee remained immobilized, elevated, iced often, and he continued minding doctor’s orders. Pete was an excellent back seat navigator! We’ve been in CT, MA, ME, NH,… Continue Reading →

When Life Hands You Lemons

“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” – Elbert Hubbard Pete and I locked up our boat on Saturday, June 30th, at 16:00 hours and headed north. We hoped to feel some of the excitement of Canada Day, July 1,… Continue Reading →

Decommissioning

When Pete first called me to report his knee injury, I was not grasping the gravity. He’s not dramatic, has a high tolerance for pain, and generally downplays a situation – – partly to prevent me from worrying. This time,… Continue Reading →
